About

One of the most important Czech artists working today, Stanislav Kolibal is known as one of the pioneers of modern art in his country and is renowned internationally  for the simplicity, elegance and refinement of his abstract oeuvre. 

Drawing has always been essential to Kolibal’s practice, and this exhibition will feature a selection of works that use drawing as a procedural foundation for considering the possibilities offered by space. The show will feature two site-specific Murals, alongside an array of works from his White Reliefs and Black and White Hints series.   

Stanislav Kolibal: The Fundamental Element of Drawing is curated by Isabela Villanueva; it is the first exhibition in Miami of this abstract mastermind. The show is organized by Merzbau Gallery alongside Frameless Gallery, London. 

About the Artist

Stanislav Kolíbal was born in 1925 in Orlová, Czech Republic. After the Second World War,  he studied Applied Graphics at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, followed by Scenography at the Academy of Performing Arts. He has exhibited in numerous museums and important historical exhibitions like Sculptures from Twenty Nations at the Guggenheim Museum in New York (1967), Between Man and Matter: the 10th Tokyo Biennale (1970),  and continues to exhibit at some of the world’s most renowned institutions like  the Centre Georges Pompidou, MoMA, the Czech National Gallery and the Salzburg Museum of Modern Art amongst many others. Kolibal's artworks have been collected by major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; the Tate Gallery in London; the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; the Ludwig Museum in Cologne; and the Albertina Museum in Vienna to name a few.
